Continuing on yesterday's theme of Attenborough Nature Reserve, some more floral delights from our walk. Firstly, a familiar if rather spiky friend, a thistle. In this case a Spear Thistle (Cirsium vulgare).
DEFRA as an 'injurious weed' requiring the occupier of the land on which it grows, to take immediate action to prevent it's spreading! Such a pity when it is such a useful flower for all types of insect.
Next the Yarrow (Achillea millefolium)
One plant you may not be so familiar with is this small, greenish flowered climbing perennial, the White Bryony (Bryonia alba)
HERE and HERE
Lastly, do you remember the Tall Melilot I mentioned a few days ago? Well, a cousin of that 'pea' plant is the White Melilot (Melilotus albus).
